I've been eyeing the tool... but have not needed it yet and I have 3 disc brake bikes now, keeping fingers crossed.

For anyone that might be interested I have these parts on ebay now. The wheels and facing tool end on Sunday 15th March. Frame and ergolever and accessories set ends 22nd March. The frame currently has a 1p bid on it. Hey surely it's worth more than that even for a Ribble!! :lol:

Yep, after going disc I also went back to rim brakes. Kept the disc though, as a backup. On my MTB discs seem far less problemmatic for some reason.

Would you send the facing tool to the USA?

I have no experience with Campy disc brakes, but do find it interesting from your ebay pics, that the pads and rotors are only half bedded in
These parts normally bed in from just 1 ride :noidea:

Cyclocross, in general, is about riding the wrong bike for the conditions.

Haven't tried Campag discs but have a foot in both rim brake and disc.. My thoughts.

Giant TCR SL rim brake. Giant SL 1 wheels, Ultegra 8k rim brakes.. Fantastic in the dry, rubbish for the first three seconds in the wet.

Giant TCX, Sram Rival discs/pads with 140mm discs.. No disc rub when wet, but squeal when they get wet.(my fave)

Vitus road bike. Ultegra 8k discs/pads with 160mm discs.. Disks rub when wet, not as much squeal in the wet but prefer the Sram on the Giant.

I have the tools to face mounts. Some shops have them. I love buying tools as much as I like riding bikes. The two go together. I would never sell a tool. It's like selling an arm.

That's a possible question to ask I don't know if it's been done before on here but what's your favourite tool. Or rarest. I still find campagnolo tools have an incredible level of quality to them especially some of the older ones. I'm thinking the crank extractor tool and the hub bearing cover remover specifically for the old c- record hubs. I really struggled to afford some of those at the time so really cherished them.

your showing your age. my favouruite tool is the the tools that makes a job effortless. for example a cyclus power toru crank arm extractor. Thats the best tool for the job as its now a effortless job. similarly the Race Face 6805 BB bearing extractor and press is the best tool for external cup bearings and is essential for doing power torque again. One thing often not understgood the standard of tool you require is not depandant on how often you use it but how well you want the job done. Too many who visit forums want to be there own mechanic but are then not willing to buy the tools required. just fitting a cassette requires good lockring tool not a cut price, poorly fitting one, a strong chain whip and a reliable and accurate torque wrench. you wont get change out £120 for all that in the UK just for fitting a cassette and that trade price ex VAT, for my prefered tools for this job.
Park Tool FR-5 or FR-11, Park Tool SR12.2 and VAR DV-10500
